Conceptual Design of the SC230 Cyclotron

Publications, 04 March 2019

The JINR Publishing Department published the preprint «Conceptual Design of the SC230 Superconducting Cyclotron for Proton Therapy». The author is Karamyshev O. et al.


Physical design of the compact superconducting cyclotron SC230 has been performed. The cyclotron will deliver up to 230 MeV beam for proton therapy and medico-biological research. We have performed simulations of magnetic and accelerating systems of the SC230 cyclotron and specified the main parameters of the accelerator. Possible schema of the extraction system and preliminary results of beam dynamics simulations are presented. Codes and methods used for the beam tracking are shortly described.
